Saturday Morning, July 20,
As we predicted, the colonists
from the Southern States who went
to Mexico, Brazil, Arc., have soen tho
elephant, and are glad to get hack
home. They have not only been dis?
appointed, but many of them believe
that they have been victimized by
false representations. A gentleman
who went to Brazil for the purpose
of personal observation, prior to a
contemplated settlement in that
country, writes" from Paris to the
Philadelphia Press, and advises every
American of limited meous, who eau
make a living, to stay at home, as in
planting it requires a largo outlay to
Tho Mobile Advertiser publishes
tho following note, which it says is j
from a thoroughly respectable gentle?
Editors Advertiser and Register:
The undersigned, a returned emi?
grant from Brazil, wishes to mako
known through your journal, to tho
people of the Southern country, that
tho emigration movement to Brazil is
a delusion, and is gotten up for spe?
culation; that os yet there has been
only ono sido of tho question pre?
sorted to the people. I am prepared
to represent tho other side, and 1
challeugo contradiction. I further
mako kuown to the people that the
Brazilian agent at New York, whose
namo is Goacura, is a scoundrel, and
ought to bo kicked out of tho coun?
try. This is saying a good deal, and
I mcau just what I say. Respectful?
ly, it c., JOHN H. EVANS.
A Louisiana paper draws the two
following pictures to illustrate tho
subject of emigration, which we be?
lieve aro pretty near thc truth:
"First with a gilt bordor. Au
accredited agent visiting Honduras,
in order to select land for a company
of speculators. He is received by
the official, rides iu carriages and on
horseback at thc public expense,
makes out a list of tho fruits of the
country from tho specimens on the
table at some great dinner given by
tho authorities or land owners, and
returns highly delighted, without
even a specimen of tho soil of the
country on his polished boots. Tho
second picture is that of a penniless
emigrant sitting on tho beach at
Belize, surrounded by his little plun?
der, helpless wifo und flock of chil?
dren. It is tho rainy season, and
Hies, gnats, etc., abound. There are
no committees to receive him, no
carriages, no dinners, and when he
essays to move iuto the woods ho
goes on foot, through the wilderness,
to commcuce a struggle for tho first
common necessaries of life, without a
hand extended to aid him."
Wo trust that this migratory fever,
so far us the South is eoucc-rncd, will
soon work itself out. Lands here inay
bo worn out, but by careful cultiva?
tion, application of fertilizers, ko.,
and by limiting the amount put
under culture, any of our old planters
can carn a support, if not mako
money. Our political condition and
status may not bo all that wo desire;
but that vs ill como right by and by.
Expatriation on account of defeat in
our hopos and aspirations is a volun?
tary solf-pnnishmcnt, which, although
wo may have the right to impose it
on ourselves, wo doubt il we have tho
same right to inflict upon Young
America. Churches, schools and col?
leges for the rising generation are
preferable to even wealth in a strange
couutry without them. Let the home
ties or tho hallowed associations of
youth not be broken up for a mero
desiro to gain richos easier elsewhere
than hore, or from tho disappoint?
ment aud chagrin of thwarted hopes.
Life is uot long enough for many
ruptures of all that makes it desirable.
WHY MAXIMILIAN W AS SHOT.-Mr.
Homero is said to attribute the stern
moosnres against Maximilian and the
Mcxicuu rebels to "the desire of the
Mexican authorities to take warning
by tho ill unccesa of tho conciliatory
policy of tho Presict ?nt and Cabinet
of tho United States toward traitors,
and also a desire to win the .sympa?
thies of tho dominant political party
in this country by a stringent and
. relentless courso toward tho foreign

The Harrisburg (Pa.) Union gives
the list of the principal appropria?
tions made by Congress to meet the
expenses of one year. We omit the
items, and give the footing, which
amounts to $296,793,037.61. During
the administration of Mr. Buchanan,
for the year ending July 4, 1860, tho
total expenses of tho Federal Go?
vernment (uot including tho amount
used for extinguishing the public
debt) was something over $59,000,000,
.which was the highest sum ever re?
quired, during peace, for the support
of tho Govorumeut.
Three huudred millions of dollars
is a vast sum for tho people of the

Tur. WHITES IN VIUOINIA.-A Viv
giniu correspondent of Hie New Yorl
Times gives some information of tin
startling fact that the probabilitic
are iu favor of there being n majority
of negro voters in the State of Virgi
uia, aud says:
"This is due to the refusal of man;
of the whites to register thcmselve
under tho military bill. It is believe)
that about 90,000 negro voters hav
been registered, while the whites
who could have registered to tb
number of 125,000, are, according t
the computation now made, seven
thousands behind the blacks. Thu
the negroes will net compactly in pc
litios, und make strenuous attempt
to eleot their own special represent!
tives, black or white, there is littl
doubt; and that much bitterness i
feeling between the two races will h
engeudered in tba contest for polit
cal supremacy, is evident from tb
present course of things. The larg
preponderance of registered blac?
over whites, in a portion of Easter
Virginia, has filled the people wit
gloom and alarm. The reproach?
which are visited upon the delinque]
whites are very severe, and the iudij
nation which is everywhere fe
against tho blind and senseless^ now
papers which have misled the whil
men into so deplorable a blunder an
crimo as turning over Virginia to tl
power of the negroes, pervades evei
part of the country."
. What is herc stated about Virgin
will probably happen in other Sont!
e^ui States, and those who hold alo
from registration will find out the s
riousuess of the mistake when t<
late to remedy it.

The following extract from an
article on the so-called "reconstruct?
ed State" of Tennessee is from the
New York Times:
Now, we eau conceive of no greater
calamity than the multiplication of
Tennossee3 ns members of the Ame?
rican Union. Of tho whole South,
Tennessee is beyoud doubt tho part
in which tho least han been dono to?
wards genuino reconstruction. It is
nominally loyal, of course. It is
represented iu Congress. It is not
included in tho region over which tho
provisions of tho military govern?
ment Acts extend. And yet what is
its condition? Essentially volcanic.
Loyal strongth is tho result uot of
loyal votes, but of rebel disfranchise?
ment. Brownlow's authority is cou
tiugent upou the application of the
crushing process to tho majority of
the people. He is as absolute in his
sphere as any of the military com?
manders in theirs, and infinitely moro
unscrupulous. Ile makes laws to
suit his purposes. He interprets
laws according to tho dictates of his
convenience. He tightens tho dis?
franchising screw as often as he finds
it necessary, ?ind employs the bayo?
net when no less pungent weapon
will carry his point. The result is,
that tlie State he governs approaches
nearer and nearer to anarchy. No?
where on tho continent, save in lmp
lcss Mexico, is life or properly loss
secure, or liberty a more transparent
mockery. A condition of civil war
really exists all tho time-smothered,
it may be, but liable at auy moment
to burst forth under the excitement
of .some sudden difficulty.
No other state of things is possible
so long as thc Brownlow doctrine of
reconstruction is allowed to pretil.
For a period, perhaps, it had its
uses. While the rebellion lasted, any
less rigorous rule might have failed
to keep in dirck the hostilo elements
with which tko border States abound?
ed, t?nt there is no pretext for per?
petuating in peace tho iron-hauded
administration which was indispensa
ble amidst the turmoil of war. The I
country requires the allegiance of all ?
citizens, but this is possible only I
w hen thc powers that lie cease to !
heap penalties upon whole classes,
audio persecute as outlaws nil who,
decline to pronounce their party
shibboleth. Brownlow proceeds ?;:i
the notion that it is necessary, ?lay !
alter day, to pile coals of firo upon
the heads of tho great majority <>i the!
people, simply because they descry
Iiis acts and seek to thwart his umbi- ?
tion. A statesman similarly sit.iated |
would acknowledge mutual recon?
ciliation ns the stopping-stone to re- '
construction; bc would seo that the
loyalty of a State can have no elli-,
cient guarantee, except the attach- '
ment ol' thc people; and he would
avoid the fatal blunder of supposing
that the elevation of his nominees io
power is a test of the 1'itness of Un?
people for the possession of the fran- !
chisc. lu a word, a wise ruler, occu?
pying Brownlow's position, within
the period which lias elapsed siuce
the close of tho rebellion, would have
restored Tennessee to peace, and
placed it far on the road to prospe?
rity. Brownlow, ou tho contrary, by
pursuing a course of which almost
fiendish malignity is the chief charac?
teristic, has alienated class from
class, driven moderate Unionists into
alliance willi unrepentant rebels, and
forced his State, rich in natural re?
sources, to a condition of despera?
tion, ?dino.-! of despair.
We are glad to seo that the exalta?
tion of Tennessee as a model State is
depreciated by iulluential radical
journals. .Missouri has tried the pro?
scriptive policy thoroughly, and the
St. Louis Democrat is not disposed to
recommend its adoption. "Tennes?
see," that print remarks, "is not a
particularly good pattern for other
States. It is not absolutely certain,"
the Democrat adds, "that the method
adopted by tho loyal men there may
uot fail to secure their safety." The j
probabilities point in the opposite
direction. There can bo no perma?
nent, safety in methods which imply
the continued parade of the conquer?
Contrasted with the Tennessee sys?
tem, tlie reconstruction policy of
Congress is merciful and just. Stern
it is, iudced, and despotic for a time,
but it opens the door to a milder
authority, ?md oilers inducements to
the acceptance of conditions by
which the South may materially im?
prove its position. The guarantees
it exacts imply no long-continued
humiliation, and no moro radical
changes than those which follow logi?
cally from tho late conflict.
Instead of commending Tennessee
as a model to be imitated hy tho
States or to bo respected in framing
the policy of the republic, wo submit
that it should be studied as an illus?
tration of the evils and dangers of a
theory of reconstruction based upon
narrow-mindedness and hate. Con?
gress holds in its hands tho power of
securing loyal organizations through?
out tho South. For the rest, rolianco
must bo placed upon tho amended
spirit and will of tho peoplo, and
these are moro likely to ho affected
by a generous forbearance, as sug?
gested by Sickles, than hy tho into?
lerance mid lawless violence which
have their offieinl incarnai ion in tho

SKNSXBXIB ADVICE.-Geo. W. Ken?
dall writes from Texas to the New
Orleans Pic? y H HW, and gives ns the
following sensible views:
The lessons which adversity teaohos
are bard, yet they must be learned.
And theso lessons aro always useful.
I "know that it comes hard for a
young man to walk behind a plow
who once rode behind a hist trotter;
uor is it agreeable to iv young lady to
mnko aud put on her dresses all by
herself, who formerly had a couple of
servants to take theso irksome jobs'
off her hands. Yet I can seo no
other remedy, at least for those who
have simply been ruined by the wnr,
hud the hst is a long one. That a
large majority have accepted the ni
tnatiou cheerfully, I nm gled to say
is true-I mean tho situation to earn
their own living; all must do it. And
there aro many who think, and I am
ono of them, that ia the long run it
will l e all tho better for tho rising
generation of the South-a genera?
tion which is to follow ono noto?
riously brought up in iguoraneo of
work und indolence ns to any useful
occupation. Thc race of men grow?
ing up will bo more muscular-the
women stronger and heartier-and
their children again improve upon
the stock. I have never beard that

How often do we hear our people
complain that they have been out
all day hunting for a servant, with?
out success. Hud they turned to
iu the morning they could have
dono all their work themselves in
a couple of hours, and saved
money and shoe leather by tho
operation. Too many people in the
South have been brought up to be
waited upon; they mus', now tie their
own shoes, and 1 repeat that the
sooner they begin, tho botter it will
be. i know that many think they
can escape this state of things by
going to Brazil, or some other out-of
the-way country; but toil is the com?
mon lot of tin? poor man the world
over, so far as I have seen, and in no
part of tho world is toil as remunera?
tivo as in tho Southern States of
America. Let us work.
Cn.vntiK.sTox.-A correspondent of
tho National Intelligencer, writing from
Our people ure on the verge of de?
spair. Our capitalists have, remitted
whatever money they could realizo
into gold to Liverpool aud France,
fearing the political events of the
next twelve months. Our real estate
is almost unsaleable; very little of our
lund can be sold at any price. All

Temporary existence seems to bo the
only anxiety. The threat of confisca?
tion and agrarianism that Messrs.
Stevens & Co. hold over us as a Da?
mocles' sword is fast undermining
everything like a hope of peace, aud
in addition to this the certainty of
having a negro State Government,
from Governor to constable, caps tho
climax of our misery. The Northern
people do not realize how poor and
broken spirited we are, or they would
not be human to continue their harsh
exactions of us. Tho efforts to make

A LEAGUE OKOAXIZEH.-Tho Wash?
ington Chronicle, of Wednesday, says:
Mr. Thomas JW. Conway, who has
just completed nu extensive tour
through the South, engaged in tho
work of establishing tho Union
League in that section, has just made
his report. It contains the gratifying
intelligence that 2,000 Union Leagues
have been established and are now in
working order throughout the South,
with an estimated membership of
200,000, all of whom ure loyal voters.
Mr, Conway will return to the
South without delay, and will de?
vote most of his time to tho States
of Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi.
Tho Union Leaguo appears to bo
adapted to tho wants of tho loyal
men of the South, and, judging from
its past experience, we may hopo for
greater results in tho future.

ENOWSH RAILWAYS.-Forney, of
the Philadelphia Press, writing from
London to his paper, says:
The English railroads rarely cross
public roads save by bridge or tun?
nel, and when they must enter a
great city like London, they almost
invariably run paralled with tho tops
of houses. You see at on co how

of a re-distribution of seats in the
Parliament of Great Britain is being
agitated, Scotland puts in her claim
to increased representation. A dele?
gation of Scotch members, with the
Lord Provosts of tho large cities, like
Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen,
lately called on the Chancellor of the

THE LICENSE QUESTION.-Tho fol?

by request of the Committee on
MESSRS. EDITORS: A card iu your
issue of tl'.e 19th, signed In* John C.
Seogers A; Co., is calculated, from the
'mis-statements therein contained, to
mislead and convey a false impression
to the public".
The following are the facts of the
ease: Since the promulgation of Gen.
Sickles1 Order No. 32, tho Committee
on Licenses have required every
applicant to exhibit his return
or receipt from tho United States
Collector or Assessor as an inn
or tavern-keeper. Messrs. John C.
Seegers & Co. hnve not exhibited
sucli pupers. By a resolution of the
City Council, passel December 4,
1866, all applications for license must
have the money accompanying the
application-if not, the application
would not bo considered. Messrs.
Seegers A Co. have never complied
with the requirements as set forth in
that resolution; consequently, they
have no license to retail spirituous
liquors for the year 1867-nor can
they produeo either certificate or re?
ceipt that they are liconsed for the,
year 1807 by Ibo City Council.
Messrs. Seegers vt Co., upon makiug
application for license, in January
last, left with the City Clerk a sealed
envelope, alleging that it contained
8150 in city coupons, which tho City
Council refused to take in payment
for their license. Tho said envelope
and contents are in possession of the
City Clerk, just as Messrs. Seegcrs &
Co. left it. The due bill alluded to
in the aforesaid card amounts to
$5.50, which was given by the City
Clerk in tho settlement for taxes of*
Messrs. Seegers A- Co. for the year
1866, (which were paid in coupons.)
As tho above named gentlemen aro
due tho city, for their taxes, some
$200 or more, (for the present year,)
the 'City Clerk presumed that he was
running no risk in being their debtor
for tho sum of .'ir?.?O.

may desire to have tho above state?
ment verified. Very rospoctfullv,
